Here is yet another shot of my friend, the mallard. This is the same one as my last shot but this time the sunlight is hitting the front of his face, bringing out the colour of the beak and head. Hope you enjoy.

Hi Sion. This is a fine close up of the male Mallard . I like the ripples and the refection in the water. Good detail and warm colours. If you had used f/8 you may fine the picture would be slightly sharper. Nice picture all the same. TFS.

at the level of the duck low POV, also fine DOF and framing,
fine focus excellent sharpness and details, beautiful refelctions
on the water, the catch-light at the eye render the photo more beautiful,

Hello Sion,
A fine capture of this Drake in beautiful light. Lovely reflections in the dark water too and well composed.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Sion,

What a wonderful capture of a pretty male mallard from an effective POV in a beautifully and fantasticaly illuminated ambience with nice natural colours and impeccable details. Delightful composition too.
TFS and have a nice Sunday MF!
